One of my pet peeves when I had my wrangler was those damn units.
The Wrangler wasn't ever designed to support one of the info-central systems used in the other Jeep vehicles. For just one example, the Wrangler has physical buttons for the front seat heaters, whereas on the new systems (like the 8.4N) have the front seat heaters are soft buttons on the screen.
We have to wait to see that the new redesigned Wrangler brings for 2018, but fancier electronics seems counter to the rough-edge character of a Wrangler.
